The Marine & Coastal Art 2020 show at Rowayton Arts Center opens September 13 and runs thru October 10.

Two of Marilyn’s photos, “Finisterre - the End of the Earth” and “Sunset on the Atlantic”, are in the show. We hope you will go to RAC to see these photos - and all the other artwork too.

There have been seven exhibitions at RAC since mid-March - five of which were virtual shows - and you can see all the artwork in these shows in the Online Gallery on the RAC web site. Marilyn has photos in five of these shows.

Purchase of any of Marilyn’s photos or note cards, will help to provide food for the families of 226 Rossholme students in Kiambiu slum in Nairobi.


We are self-supported missioners – we’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit - and we’ve lived with the local people in Kenya for 15 summers. However, this year we are keeping in touch with our young friends there by text and email.

We’ve spent time with young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to school. It is our hope that these graduates will get good jobs - and that they will in turn help to raise other at-risk children out of their poverty.


Since 2005 we have been raising money for the education of children and young people and providing counseling and emotional support to them. Some are still in primary and secondary schools. Others have graduated and gone on to universities or vocational schools. The need continues.

We are also involved in various ways with a number of schools and other organizations in Kenya.
